It involves constructing a Jenga tower of music and moments that cumulatively add up to a rich legacy, while not pulling out too many pieces that might cause it to come crashing down. It involves knowing when to take chances and when to stay safe; when to dramatically evolve and when to simply offer the illusion of newness; when to give fans what they want and when to give fans what they need. Fortunately for Phish and those who love the band, these kinds of tricks have been a strength from go, and on Halloween of 2018, they pulled off one of their best tricks yet: they became a fictional band to evolve into a better Phish....</p> Sat, 28 Mar 2020 20:22:17 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@bobbker) Song Breathe In, Breathe Out http://phi.sh/b/5e7a7efc http://phi.sh/b/5e7a7efc <p><em>[This post is courtesy of fan Keith Eaton, <a href="http://phish.net/user/Midcoaster" style="text-decoration:none">@Midcoaster</a>, who is still processing Trey&#39;s 2 &frac12; hour music drop that was Ghosts of the Forest one year later. A slow processor, it takes him some time to sort these things out. He first became obsessed with music when, in 1979, he sat in a darkened theater and watched Apocalypse Now. Nothing was ever quite the same after that opening sequence.]</em></p> <p>Last spring (2019), I had a rare moment of synergy. It came while reading Michael Pollan&#39;s book How to Change Your Mind. I had blazed through the first four and a half sections at a record clip. This is no easy feat, for me, as a busy teacher. That reading streak was interrupted, pleasantly, by a couple of weekends of traveling to shows: Mike Gordon at The Sinclair, and then Trey&#39;s Ghosts of the Forest (GOTF) at the Portland State Theater. Surprisingly, the Trey show was profoundly connected to the experiences of patients in the guided psychedelic therapy sessions that Pollan describes, it just took me a while to see it.<br /> <img src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_CgCUJB7BC9VJEm-z1UmzgFXlYyBhUaTqAg6cT05qsPeNdlm1V0QHmB7hbZ3Ugp5rbLN_2cFgiCXHcz1dIrllMIWFjuTgd-duUUrIguiFfSRCxwdXKoExG4v5FGXFU4mYrtqXiEE" style="float: right; width: 250px; height: 386px;" /></p> <p style="line-height:1.38">Mid-April, a couple of weeks after Ghosts of the Forest debuted in Maine, I returned to Pollan&#39;s final two sections of the book. Reading about the use of psilocybin to treat depression and despair, even, in end-of-life therapy, I was struck by a passage where Pollan used Bertrand Russell&#39;s words to describe what it would be like to cultivate or prepare for an acceptance of death: &quot;the best way to overcome one&#39;s fear of death &#39;is to make your interests gradually wider and more impersonal, until bit by bit the walls of the ego recede, and your life becomes increasingly merged into the universal life&#39; &quot; (355). Suddenly, I heard a melody.</p> <p style="line-height:1.38">It only took a second to recognize that I was hearing strains of Trey&#39;s GOTF composition &quot;Wider.&quot; Following &quot;Ruby Waves&quot; and the instrumental &quot;Shadows Thrown by Fire&quot; (I&#39;d had to look this up), I was suddenly struck by the fact that in his exercise of staring down Chris Cottrell&#39;s death, Trey&#39;s song cycle was mirroring the experiences Michael Pollan was detailing in his book. Most strikingly similar were the results of tests done with patients who had a terminal cancer diagnosis. The Venn diagram of loss, grief cycles, mystical ego death, and guided psychedelic therapy were suddenly overlaying my dawning understanding of GOTF in full.</p> Wed, 25 Mar 2020 01:00:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog Mystery Jam Monday Part 409 http://phi.sh/b/5e785858 http://phi.sh/b/5e785858 <p>Welcome to the <a href="https://clyp.it/uwsps2no">409</a>th edition of Phish.Net&#39;s Mystery Jam Monday, the <s>final</s> penultimate contest of March - thanks to MJM Hall of Famer <a href="http://phish.net/user/HarborSeal">@</a><a href="http://phish.net/user/justino">justino</a> for crafting this puzzle!

There is, literally, nothing to compare it to. Sharing the groove with the smallest crowd you&rsquo;ll find, on the beach, with the Carribean Sea lapping the shoreline beside you (or around you!), in the middle of winter, in Mexico, after spending the day drinking mimosas and tequila, sunning on the beach, eating ceviche or strutting your best floaty at one of the many pool parties; it is nothing short of continually astounding that we get to do this. It&rsquo;s apparent that the band feels this way as well, because they are consistently relaxed and in a fun, playful mood. The return of Fishman&rsquo;s pink jacket and shorts (because how can you wear that only once??) on night 4 was an indication that the band was feeling loose and playful, with Fishman playing a rare set out of the dress.</p> <p style="line-height:1.38">I love this trip.</p> <p><br /> <figure><img alt="&copy; 2020 Phish (Rene Huemer)" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/022320e.jpg" /><figcaption>&copy; 2020 Phish (Rene Huemer)</figcaption></figure></p> Tue, 25 Feb 2020 00:06:14 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog Speed Up Security on Summer Tour! http://phish.net/news/1581220649 http://phish.net/news/1581220649 <p><a href="https://stores.portmerch.com/phishnet/featured-products/mockingbird-clear-backpack.html"><img alt="" src="https://stores.portmerch.com/media/catalog/product/cache/79/image/1000x/040ec09b1e35df139433887a97daa66f/b/a/backpack.jpg" style="border-width: 0px; border-style: solid; margin: 5px; float: right; height: 150px;" /></a>Tired of waiting for security to go through your bag on the way into a show?
